A Soft Outfit for a Warm Day

Hi Everyone!

I was finally able to take an outfit photo yesterday. It's starting to get warmer here (high 80s-90s). I wore this outfit to go see a movie at the Paramount Theater downtown, which is one of those old-fashioned theaters that used to stage plays but now they also show old films in the summer too. I went to with a friend and her husband and we sipped gin ricky's and watched "The Sting," then went to dinner afterwards. It was really fun!

I picked up this tunic at TJ Maxx a few days ago. It was on the clearance rack and looked pretty dingy and wrinkled, but I figured for $15 it was worth taking home and seeing if I could clean it up. I like the pleats down the front and the drape. It reminds me of a blouse from the 1920s.

Tunic: Free People
Skirt: J. Crew
Bag: Anthropologie
Shoes: Bass

Comments and suggestions are always welcome! Thank you for looking. :)

P.S. I just got a new phone and the camera in it is supposed to be better than my point and click. I took this photo on the HD setting with my phone, so please let me know how the quality is for all of you, would you? I might be able to do some editing to make it better.

    Gorgeous! Light, airy, pretty and fashion forward.

  • CocoLion replied 12 years ago

    Quality of picture is high, I wouldn't have guessed it was taken with a phone!

    Love the outfit and especially your new tunic. Great find, I've never seen anything from Free People at my local TJM.

    Beautiful and chic! I love how you can put relatively simple pieces together in such a stylish way. Love the flats. So glad that you rescued that tunic from its dingy confinement :)

  • Ana replied 12 years ago

    Thank you so much, everyone! Thanks for the feedback on the photo as well. It is very helpful to know how the quality comes across for everyone else.

    I really like it - that light color and simple shape seem smart in warm weather.

  • annagybe replied 12 years ago

    Looks good and I'm impressed with the photo quality with a camera phone.

  • citygirldc replied 12 years ago

    Totally love the outfit.

    You look so pretty! I love the blouse.

  • ironkurtin replied 12 years ago

    I love everything but the shoes. I only *like* the shoes. : ) They seem not quite airy enough for the rest of the outfit. Do you have any chunky sandals, maybe?

  • Kiwichik replied 12 years ago

    Perfect putfit to go see The Sting that drapey top is very pretty on you.

  • Amy replied 12 years ago

    Perfect, head to toe.

    I can't believe the quality of that camera phone pic! Impressive.

    Anna, I got that same Anthro handbag as a gift for my sister for Christmas this year. I thought it was beautiful, and she's got a very casual artsy style.

    That floaty blouse almost has an ethereal, dreamlike quality. The sleeve detail looks almost Grecian to me. It's a beautiful piece, so I'm glad that you scooped it up!

  • Irene replied 12 years ago

    Wow, that blouse is super beautiful :)

  • RoseandJoan replied 12 years ago

    I LOVE this Ana, it is both soft and neutral!

  • Ana replied 12 years ago

    Thank you so much for all the comments! :D

    IK, thanks for the suggestion! I think it's really good. Unfortunately, I don't have any chunky sandals. Right now I only have three pairs of sandals total. They are on my shopping list, though! I'm just kind of picky (and I hate shoe shopping), so building my collection is slow going. :)

  • Joy replied 12 years ago

    Looking at shoes today I saw many stylish young women wearing and looking at shoes similar to those you are wearing. Love the top, but the shoes help keep the outfit modern and young (not frumpy).

  • replied 12 years ago

    Good eye for spotting that top. It looks pristine now, and perfect for a hot day!

  • Debbie replied 12 years ago

    You look great. Cool and comfortable.

  • Diana replied 12 years ago

    So pretty and ethereal. Hooray for seeing the potential in that top. I love the fun bag too!

    ETA: The photo quality looks excellent to me.

  • Mona replied 12 years ago

    You look absolutely gorgeous in this tunic.

  • Jjsloane replied 12 years ago

    Simple and beautiful. I love the new tunic top - very feminine and versatile (and a great price)

  • krishnidoux replied 12 years ago

    I immediately noticed the tunic. Love the sleeves!
    However I side wiht IK about the shoes. Sandals, ballet flats or kitten heel are my suggestions.

  • Jaime replied 12 years ago

    Well I like the whole thing including the shoes! So pretty!

  • Deborah replied 12 years ago

    This is so pretty! The shoes with this are probably a little fashion forward for me however they work:). The tunic is gorgeous a d I really like the silhouette you have created with the outfit.
